  • Not on Facebook? You must be a psycho!

    At least according to a bunch of people whose opinions matter not a bit to me. The only problem I have is the employers part of it.
    Facebook has become such a pervasive force in modern society that increasing numbers of employers, and even some psychologists, believe people who aren't on social networking sites are 'suspicious.'

    Good grief, that is so lame. How about I'm not on Facebook because its stupid? Maybe employers ought to think I'm incredibly smart for doing something better with my time than playing Farmville all day. Now MySpace, that's entirely different

      I deleted facebook the day I started applying at LEO agencies. Other then that all it was is people I haven't spoken to in years spreading their gossip and drama.

        Well I guess it's now official that I'm a weirdo...

        I'm the only person in my family (and friends) who don't have FB... and I'm damn proud of it!

          Yeah, and it wasn't that long ago that another "study" said people who use FB are egotistical or something like that. "Whatevah."

          I gave it up partly because I didn't need to receive a message every time "a friend of a friend of a friend" (what song is that from?) "Liked" something, sliced cheese, etc.

          Just this past week I ran across a news story about a sheriff somewhere who allegedly fired some people because they had "Liked" his opponent's FB page before the election. I figured it was old news here, so I didn't start a thread about it, but jeez . . .
          Pretending not to notice something like that might not be easy, but it will avoid wrongful termination lawsuits. Then you can just add their names to your list of People Who Bear Watching.

            My daughter works for a Federal LE agency. She was told by her supervisor specifically NOT to have a facebook page. Apparently defense attorneys look for ways to discredit prosecution witnesses and social media just gives more opportunity to have something untoward show up. That was the theory of one supervisor, I doubt it is policy agency wide.
            When you are dead, you don't know you're dead. It is difficult only for the others around you.

            It is the same when you are stupid.

                  Thats why you never use your real information on facebook. My screen name for it isnt my real name but one i made up. There is no way to trace it back to me unless you happen to find people that have me on their friends list. Even then you would have to figure out which one i am.

                      Oh Lieutenant....you hurt my feelings.....I'm on Twitter!!!!

                      Well, all I really do is just follow 160 accounts. I've tweeted some poeple before (police officers, news reporters etc) I even got a photo I took and tweeted printed in a local newspaper! But all in all, I don't tweet that much.

                        Man, I Twit, I Face and I O.Com.

                        I got it all covered. Of course, if I was still on the job, I wouldn't chance it but now living the life of a free, fat, old white boy, employed in the private sector, making twice what I made as a cop and freely excercising my right to free speech as a writer, over 21 and straight, I can say anything, smoke anything, eat anything, drink anything, insult anyone, slam everyone, opine about anything that annoys me and if they don't like it they can kiss me right in the crack of my big, white, fat ***.

                        And, they gotta keep sending the checks. Life is good.

                              It is one of the best ways to stay in contact with deployed family and friends. They get a few minutes of online time and can post an update which goes out to each person who cares.
